Top Spring/Summer Styles

moulin-rouge-metallic-seam_1This season let your accessories do the work for you and stay on trend easily with these handy tips…

 

White Tights

Recently spotted on Suki Waterhouse, white tights aren’t for the faint-hearted, but when done correctly they look divine. For a splash of celeb style, follow Suki’s example and wear them with a pale pastel pink dress and platform sandals to get in on that “socks and sandals” trend. We recommend matching your pastel pieces with the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights made from 70% wool and available in Bianco Lana, as these wool tights are both cosy and chic. For a purse-friendly version then plump for the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights available in a huge range of colours including white. Curvy ladies will love the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Tights designed especially for voluptuous figures. Now we can confirm that it’s official: white tights are not just for children but essential for nailing that pastel trend.

 

Metallic

It’s time to unleash your inner magpie and indulge in some serious glitter. Metallic tights and socks are the perfect way to embrace this trend without suffering from ‘shiny overload’. Get a sultry leg lengthening effect with the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights in 10 denier, from the front they look just like a normal pair of black sheer tights but as soon as you twirl round you can see their glittery line that travels up the back of both legs. If those fashion tights aren’t quite glittery enough for you, then check out the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklet, full to the brim with gorgeous glitter. Style these stunning socks with flat pointed shoes and a full length lemon yellow coat.

 

Floral

wolford-delia-tights_2

What do we all think of when it comes to Spring/Summer, yes you guessed it: flowers. Give this pretty trend a more modern update with the Wolford Delia Tights in 20 denier with their floral take on polka dots. If you think lace is ace then you will adore the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights with their rose patterned design – these popular tights have been styled by Vogue no less, now if that won’t convince you I don’t know

what will!

 

Whether you’re a floral fan, metallic lover or adore all things white, we hope that we’ve helped you find your perfect pair of tights so that you can adopt those trends with panache.

Laura’s Choice: SS14 Trends

I love watching new looks emerge on the catwalk, but what’s even better is seeing how they translate on the high street – and of course how they’re reflected in the world of hosiery!  With the official arrival of spring last week, I’ve decided it was high time I shared with you some of my favourite trends for SS14, along with some inspiration on how to wear them… tienga-patterned-tights

Trend: Geometric Patterns

Seen at: House of Holland, Peter Pilotto

If you want to get away with patterns at the office, go for a small, all over design, like the Pretty Polly Layered Honeycomb Tights.  Team these with a pencil skirt and knee high boots and you’ll reveal just a flash of pattern as you walk – the ultimate grown up way to work the trend.  For the younger and bolder, a short A-Line skirt and plain cropped jumper will show off bold designs like the bondage style Pamela Mann Gridlock Sheer Tights, or create a fashion forward clash effect by donning the tribal-inspired Jonathan Aston Tienga Tights with a skater dress in a contrasting pattern.

Trend: Embellishments

Seen at: Mui Mui, Prada, Marc Jacobs

wolford-mimi-tights

Embellishments are back again, following on from last year’s Great Gatsby craze when everyone went mad for a little bling.  The best bit is embellished tights are so easy to wear, whether you choose to dress them up or down.  Try teaming something subtle like the Pamela Mann 120D Studded Tights with your regular office skirt and classic blouse, or for all out glamour go for something extra glitzy like the Trasparenze Party Tights, which are adorned with a trail of sparkly butterflies up the leg.  Mirror the sparkle with a statement necklace and voila!  A party ready look in an instant.

Trend: Florals

Seen at: House of Holland, Jonathan Saunders, Erdem

Florals are a spring staple, so you can stick with tradition and wear the Wolford Mimi Tights with summery pastel shades – the sweet floral side seam will instantly put spring in your step.  Or for an edgier way to wear them, oriental inspired styles like the Pamela Mann Flocked Rose Tights and the Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights will work really well with casual attire and a lashing of leather.

Trend: Lace

pamela-mann-baroque-tulle-tights

Seen at: Stella McCartney, Burberry Prorsum, Chanel, Marc Jacobs

Lace for spring is a revelation for me – I’d always thought of it as very much a winter staple, but who am I to argue with Chanel?  For a really up to the moment look team the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights with a jersey midi skirt, slouchy t-shirt, anklet booties and a long statement necklace… but I’ll be sticking to my tried-and-tested shift dress and Wolford Nahla Tights combination!

Trend: Sheer

Seen at: Christian Dior, PPQ, Maxmara

Sheer black tights are the hit of the season, with fashionistas from Alexa Chung to Miranda Kerr flying the flag for the shadowy sheers.  The best thing about them? They go with EVERYTHING, from floral sundresses to lace bodycons, and even city shorts and blazer pairings. A sheer 10-20 denier style is the ideal way to work the look – try my much loved Oroblu Sensuel Tights, which feel super soft to the touch and come in a huge range of colours if you’d rather branch out from black.  Or for a little more coverage, go for a 30 denier pair like the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights (which have an in built control, top, too – perfect for form fitting dresses).

Until next week…

Laura’s Choice: Lovely in Lace

pamela-mann-linked-leaf-lace-tightsFrom its origins in the early sixteenth century to the SS14 catwalks, there’s no denying the enduring power of lace.  Perfect for adding a little pizazz to tired pencil skirts and boring jersey dresses alike, take a look at my top lace tights from the MyTights collection and transform your wardrobe in just a few clicks…

Classic

Classic lace styles are ideal if you want something subtle for the office or a versatile look that’ll work for both day and night. The Charnos Scroll Net Tights feature a vertical zig zag scroll design on a netted construction, and will look as at home with a shift dress and pumps for work as they do with flat knee high boots and a jumper dress for a more casual weekend look.  Or for something a little girlier, the Pamela Mann Linked Leaf Lace Tights have a gorgeous leaf pattern woven into the fishnet base – perfect for teaming with a one shoulder or wrap dress for an indulgent Grecian style.

sweet-roses-ankletTrend

Catwalk queens that want something on trend and fabulous, sit up and take note – lace was one of the most tweeted terms during fashion week.  Designers including Burberry, Peter Pilotto and Meadham Kirchoff all paid homage to the fabric, with particular emphasis on coloured lace and feminine silhouettes.  The Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights feature a lacy baroque floral design on a micronet base, and come in three shades (classic black, pink and violet).  Make like the catwalks at Jean Paul Gaultier and team with a frilled patterned dress for clash points, or if you’re not quite bold enough go for a soft chiffon dress in complementary pastel shades.  Ankle socks are also set to be a big trend for the third consecutive spring season, so why not kill two birds with one stone in the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Anklets, which come in black and ivory shades?  Team with sweet peter pan collar dresses, à la Orla Kiely, or toughen up with leather as seen at the Jean Paul Gaultier show.

Luxury

If you’re the type of lady that likes the finer things in life, I can’t recommend the Wolford Nahla Tights highly enough.  The perfect option if you’re looking for luxury lace to go with an evening cocktail dress, they have a swirling design on a net base, as well as all the design trimmings we’ve come to expect from the high end brand.  I team these with a plain colour pop dress and statement necklace to balance the intricate detailing.  The Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights are ideal for frosty winter mornings – though not strictly lace, these have made the list thanks to their cosy 80% Merino wool content and crochet design, which will give the effect of lace with all the warmth of wool.

Retro

Meanwhile, vintage vixens should know that lace is a retro wardrobe staple.  The Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights are perfect for that old school look – with a vintage style back seam created from the cut and sew design, these lacy lovelies boast an intricate rose design and come in black or ivory (the ivory is perfect if you’re after something special for your wedding day).  And fans of hold ups need not fret – the Trasparenze Holiday Hold Ups feature a sensational floral design that trails all over the fine mesh base.

sweet-roses-lace-tights_2Plus Size

Were you created with curves?  Worry not – voluptuous ladies are of course catered for at MyTights.com, and that’s no exception when it comes to lace lovelies.  The Pamela Mann Plus Size Paisley Net are gorgeously flattering for your curves and are available up to a UK size 32.  What’s more, their sister product, the Pamela Mann Paisley Net Tights come in the regular Pamela Mann “one size” – which fits UK sizes 8-14 – so no one gets left out.

Whether it’s a new office look or a budget busting LBD update, an elegant luncheon  accessory or a vampish evening look you’re after, the versatility of lace hosiery means you can get a look that’s timeless AND on trend! So get shopping – you’re just a lashing of lace away from a sensational new look.

Until next week…

Cable Knit

Let’s face it, in Blighty spring may be a delightfully fresh season – but it isn’t guaranteed to be warm! Cable knits spice up that office look, all the while keeping you toasty and snug. The Pretty Polly Chevron Cable Tights feature a sumptuous pattern that elongates and flatters your pins.

Guest Blog: The PR Girl

Sidonie-portraitWe managed to persuade top PR girl Sidonie Goldman from Wolford to tell about a typical day in the Wolford PR office, and also to give us her top picks for the season ahead?

My day in the busy press office at WOLFORD

What I love about my job is that each day is different!? Here?s a snapshot of what is happening in our busy press office?

- 8.50am – Arrive at the office.? Take a look at all the press clippings and social medi

- 9.00am – Meeting with my team about the day?s tasks and weekly project

- 10.30am – Meeting with Marketing Director of the Canary Wharf Shopping Centre, where one of our stores is: establishing Social media strategy for Christmas and how we are going to optimise traffic in our boutiqu

- 12.30pm – Lunch meeting with blogger Alexandra Zagalsky from Beautifulyou.com: before lunch I took her to one of our boutiques to see the collection in its natural environment. We discussed different posts, imagery and possible competitions…

- 2pm – Back to the office – calling and emailing a few magazines to see if they need any Wolford tights for their forthcoming stories – catching up on emails and calls.

- 4pm ? Off out again to meet with a designer (can?t say which ? top secret!) to talk about their show during LFW in February and determine if I can help them with hosiery.

- 5pm – Back to the office again for yet more emails?

- 5.30 to 6pm – End of the day, I need to go home and have a glass of wine!

Take a look at my top picks for your hosiery drawer for SS14?

Sidonie-favourite-wolford-tights

graphic design software for beginners

Velvet de Luxe 66?Tights
These are my all time favourite. They will take me from morning meeting to parties in the evening ? I just have to add a big necklace or cocktail ring for the evening, change my shoes from flats to Nicholas Kirkwood heels and it?s done!

Individual 10 Control Top?Tights
I really like nude tights, even in the summer. In France we are used to going out with a pair of tights on, it finishes the silhouette and gives you great body contour – plus they give your legs a beautiful and even tone.? I normally wear a pair with a barely visible reinforced toe, they last longer and are great with open toe shoes and sandals.

Trend: SS14 Bootlace Tights
I wore this pair in Black/Black for the press day and everybody commented on them. They are definitely a show stopper and will actually look good on all body shapes, you don’t have to wear a mini skirt. I wear it with pencil skirt and a nice pair of black simple high heeled shoes. Having said that, I love the whole SS14 collection of Wolford Fashion – it will definitely be very difficult to choose between all the amazing styles!

Spring/Summer 2014 Trends

MoschinoSeptember is a busy month for fashionistas who have their eyes glued to the runways of Fashion Week. From New York to London to Milan to Paris, the world?s top designers have brought out their Spring/Summer 2014 collections for us to see. After poring through the collections, I picked out some of my favourite hosiery and sock trends and similar products that we have here at MyTights!

Chanel is a personal favourite of mine; I?ve always loved their shows. This year they displayed a colourful artistic theme, all inspired by an antique German paint chart. Each model wore either black or white mid calf socks. A similar style would be the Falke Family All Round socks, which come in both black and white, to tone down any colourful outfits you might be sporting this coming Spring.

Comme des Garcons pushed boundaries at their show with a rebellious punk theme. Black, white and candy pink tights were all incorporated into the outfits, but the candy pink were really the statement-makers in my opinion. Pamela Mann 50 Denier tights come in the simpler black and white, and the pink too if you?re feeling daring!

Moschino, celebrating their 30th anniversary, made sure their show was a real party. A common piece in their collection was the super trendy micronet tights. Although they fit perfectly with the heavier, punk ?bad girl? outfits, they also added a dark twist to the more feminine floral looks. The black Jonathan Aston Micronet tights are perfect if you want to give the edgy Moschino look a try!

All these styles can be pretty flexible for any occasion, so take a look at these trendy pieces and make them your own!

London Fashion Week – Our hosiery highs and lows!

It?s that time of year ladies, as I round up my favourite moments from the fashion blitz that hit London this week. It seems that it was only last month that I recalling the AW13 highlights, but this time round, designers have done it bigger ? and better. From pretty pastels and sultry sheer panels, the last week has been awash with fabulous ideas for our wardrobe, and as ever, my hosiery sixth sense has come into play!

iphone text tracker

ashish-odd-socksFirst things first, it appears that socks of all shapes and sizes are on the agenda come spring next year. From mismatched to knee high, I?ve spotted quite a few designers embracing the must have accessory.? Leading the way when it comes to all things quirky, thrice winner of the BFC New Generation award

ASHISH experimented with odd socks. Yes, you read that right, odd socks! With all patterns and shades welcome, it appears that the charming laundry accident is set to become fashionable. For the adventurous out there that are willing to try it, I recommend stocking up on the Monique Socks from Trasparenze. Super lightweight and ankle length, the colourful socks have a purse friendly price tag that will forgive the need to buy two pairs at a time. On the other end of the spectrum, pattern enthusiasts Orla Kiely have gone back to basics, letting knee highs add a quintessentially British touch to their SS14 collection. Straw coloured for a neutral look, the Falke Soft Merino Wool Knee Highs in ?Linen? are a must if you want to recreate the look sooner than later.

My personal highlight of LFW has to be Burberry Prossum. A delicate combination of floaty fabrics and macaroon pastels, I?m pre-empting a tidal wave of baby pinks and lilacs for next spring. To get one step ahead of crowd, invest in an array of pastel tinted legwear now. From Jonathan Aston, the Sheer Coloured Tights in Mint and Fuchsia are perfect, whilst the 50 Denier Tights from Pamela Mann in Lavender are a must. ?And when it comes to pastel hued hosiery on the catwalks, I?ve spotted my fair share of off-white ankle socks making their appearance. For a high quality pair that will last all year round (and not just for SS14!), treat feet to the Falke Family All Round Socks.

Taking care of our evenings, the likes of Mark Fast and Simone Rocha have made sure that black is firmly back on our colour wheel. By incorporating sheerer panels and faint patterns, both designers have set the standard high when it comes to getting dressed for that night out. To work a little of this sheer magic into your wardrobes now, invest in a good pair of sheer tights.

Pretty Pastels!

Simple but sound advice as a great quality black sheers will stand the test of time, going with just about anything and everything.? To start with, a ladder resistant pair is always best, making sure that no matter how hectic your schedule is, you?ll never have to worry about a pesky run. A favourite of mine, the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights come prepared with revolutionary ladder resist LYCRA? Fusion?fibres to guarantee that a small snag will never develop into anything more. For a winter-friendly alternative, try going up in denier to the Aristoc Ultimate Satin 20 Tights. With a 20 denier appearance and a shiny finish, these will go beautifully underneath that LBD or shift dress. For a shorter but just as sheer version, team the Levante Class Knee Highs with strappy shoes and platforms. Admittedly not my cup of tea, I?ve been assured that come spring, we?ll all be wearing them…

I can only wonder what trends and colours AW14 catwalks will bring with them!
